Subject: Caveat Emptor

This book provides a superfluity of anecdotes about tricks various repairmen play on their customers, and how they can be caught.

It concludes repairmen cheat their customers mostly because 1) they are poorly payed to begin with, and 2) their customers will seldom return anyway.

The illustrations are lavish for the topic.
